Faux Distressed Barn Wood Mirror Frames..


Recently i was asked to make grey Barn-wood mirror frames for hotel in Jamaica . After locating vendor for material i was shocked to learn at the huge price increase for this reclaimed wood  . This job was on a two week turn around schedule so getting enough material and fair price  quickly was not realistic .

i suggested i make Faux frames heavily distressed and client went with it . ..i think i got it right as others commented that those ‘old’ frames looked cool ..:)


Tools for Custom Woodworker

Straight lining  long Oak board for milling ..Large  production mill shops have special , expensive machines for this . Small shops like mine do not have the room for some of these industrial equipment .. So , you get a Festool  track saw that can cut almost 3 inches deep without hesitation.. No complaints..
